The boyfriend and I stayed at the Villa of the Rising Sun for one week during June and fell in love with the place. Large open plan living, very clean & well-kept, gorgeous modern design and the most magnificent views over Koh Tao and the sea.
We’ve been to Koh Tao several times before and so knew what to expect in terms of the island itself and road conditions, but we found access just fine to the villas. We’ve found that the price of accommodation in general on Koh Tao is higher than in other areas of Thailand, I guess due to the fact that it is an island, however we found this villa great value for money on Koh Tao. This is the first time we have stayed at Casas del Sol and we will definitely return in the future as we have not seen another place as unique as this before on Koh Tao.
It is a self-catered villa, but they do provide some basics on arrival – drinking water, coffee, tea, etc. And we were given complimentary housekeeping once every three days, which suited us perfectly as we wanted to be in our own little paradise and not bothered by staff.
The manager, Natalia, looked after us perfectly on our arrival and departure, and was always there to answer any questions that we had during our stay.
We highly recommend Casas del Sol and were very sad to leave! We can’t wait to return next year!!
